Purpose & methodology

Purpose: To create a deeper understanding of how to assist clients/participants to improve their EQ with a special focus on developing a comprehensive understanding of the MHS model and the EI competencies. Developing EQ is about making a choice to think about life and life’s challenges through the lens of EI.

Methodology: Through role modelling, direct instruction, interactive games and exercises, the facilitator (David Cory or Catherine Burdett) will take you through a one day course, explaining how and why we deliver the content the way we do. Through this process you will get ideas and approaches that you can use with your coaching clients and groups for any length of session. You will also receive the participant manual, course outline, PowerPoint slides, video clips, games and exercises – all in modifiable form so you can edit and use these materials in any way that meets your unique needs.

Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • be able to create a workshop, course, or Key Note presentation designed to introduce and develop EQ skills (again with the focus on teamwork and leadership, but can be easily modified for your specific purpose – and we’ll coach you on how to do this if you have questions)
  • obtain all the materials in modifiable form to create participant manuals, handouts, course outlines, PowerPoint presentations, exercises, and games for specific learning points
    understand at a deeper level what is required to create real sustainable EQ development for individuals and groups
  • receive post-course support to address challenges faced in creating EQ development sessions for clients

Reviews & recommendations

Excellent balance of theory, science and practical applications

I just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic workshop! I really enjoyed the EI course which re-inspired me on a number of levels – personally, relationally and professionally. The many positive comments that participants were making to each other during lunch and coffee breaks is a measure of just how good this training was. David’s ability to present on EI with a deep respectful interpersonal presence and gentle humor made the hours fly by. Even though I came to the workshop with a solid background knowledge of emotional intelligence, this course’s excellent balance of theory, science and practical applications stretched me even further.

Impressed with course content and facilitation

I just finished the EQ-i course and am in the middle of the 360 Feedback. I really enjoyed hearing and seeing David Cory in action both in the three day training certification course and in the three hour phone conference. I am most impressed with how David handles the course content and the facilitation of the various questions that come from the participants. I am looking forward to using the resources and training provided with both my companies and the contacts derived from the connectivity. Presently, these two companies Peer Mentor and Faith Mentor are about mentoring, coaching and leadership training which directly involves emotional intelligence. The concepts developed and shared by David will be most useful as I link with other companies and leadership around the world. Thank you David.

Thank you very much for the amazing job you did leading the EQ-i 2.0/360 training last week in Toronto. I have been to MANY training sessions in my career, and yours was by far the best. Quite honestly, I am still somewhat ‘deer in the headlights’ in terms of the material, but I am a huge fan of anything that forces us to dig a little deeper. It was quite epiphanous for me, both personally and professionally.

A Wonderful Course

Really enjoyed the EQi 2.0/EQ 360 certification course in Ottawa in February. David did a wonderful job teaching the course and left us feeling that he had exceeded our expectations completely. Also, the other participants were a joy to meet and interact with in the exercises. We look forward to meeting up again sometime soon. We would solidly recommend the course to anyone looking for EQ training.

Transformative learning experience

Participating in the EQ-i 2.0 / EQ 360 certification course was a transformative learning experience! I appreciated the experiential activities that had us interpreting assessments and demonstrating the components of effective feedback and debrief best practices. Each day surpassed my expectations of the workshop providing incredible insight into how emotions and their impact influence various aspects of our lives! This was truly a fabulous course!!!”
